2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark’ish golden color, light head, medium lacing. There’s a citrus/tangy taste on the palate. Not at all what I would expect from a pale ale, short finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
3 oz. draft sample. Like most of the Sea Dog brews, this looked great with big long lasting head, good lacing and carbonation. Bready smell. Taste was bread malt with a mild bitterness. Light body, very sessionable. Overall, probably my favorite of the Sea Dog flight.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught @ Sea Dog, Bangor, ME: I’m quite sure this was listed as "Bangor Pale Ale", so why the same company is also calling it Topsham Pale Ale is beyond me. Crazy Americans. She came a light pumpkin colour with a clingy white head and awesome lacing. I couldn’t pull any aroma at all. Tastes like a hoppy pale ale with straw, white bread and grass notes. Bitter and some spicy white pepper. Sounds better than it tasted, though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Served in a pint glass, there really wasn’t any head to speak of by the time it made it to the table... just a thin, white film on the beer. Body is a dark orange color, and slightly hazy.
S: A little weak for an APA... some hops and maybe very light traces of citrus.
T: Pretty decent; not the strongest-tasting APA out there, to be sure. Starts off with a bit of a lemon taste to it, then finishes bitter with the hops. But this is light bitterness here, making it easy to drink, but lacking in any real personality.
M: Slightly creamy and medium-bodied, with average carbonation.
D: Not a bad APA, but certainly not a great one. Definitely good enough to have one on a sunny day out on their deck, as it’s quite easy to drink.
